Sydney’s Coal Seam Gas Protest – Just Everyday People

Last week I marched alongside thousands of everyday Australians, who are greatly concerned about coal seam gas mining. Personally I was surprised to see business men in suits, elderly women, teenage girls, families and farmers together raising their voices. Not fanatics or radicals – just everyday people.

Even more surprising was that 22 different community organisations came together with an united, outspoken voice against coal seam gas mining.  One such group was the Country Women’s Association of Australia (CWA), who in their 90 year history had never taken to the streets – until now!

Thanks to the Wilderness Society of NSW who again allowed me to hang with them during the protest.
